Dedicated to the gods of sake and rice, the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of the oldest Shinto shrines in Japan.
Five shrines dot the forested temple grounds, and the arched red lines of torii gates straddling the pathway leading up to Inari Mountain are a truly iconic sight.
You’ll also see plenty of stone foxes at this temple, another symbol of Shinto.
A lovely place for a stroll in rural surrounds, there are fine views of Kyoto from the top of the torii gate pathway up the mountain. Stop off for a sustaining bowl of tofu soup at the small restaurants along the way.
Fei was a great guide, she explained us the story of each place we visited. She speaks good English and she is very friendly. The tour highlighted the area that you have to visit, it was a great time visiting Tofukuji Temple, Fushimi Inari Shrine and Geisha District in Gion street:)
like a private tour. Did one day private tour in Kyoto , but this tour was better
My guide was amazing, friendly, and a lot of fun to hang out with. I was the only person on the tour, so we became fast friends,
The Fushimi Inari Shrine is on Kyoto’s southeastern edge. It’s a few minutes’ walk from the JR Fushimi-Inari Station.
